I´ve been on the road again… My friend Aren arrived from Ann Arbor, MI on the 3rd of January. We hadn´t seen each other for about 2 years, but that didn´t slow us down from me showing him the San Sebastian experience. Drinking Txakoli, eating pintxos, and walking around the sunbathed (that day) city. Sho0ting-the-shit, telling stories, and cracking jokes the whole way along we knew we´d have a good next 3 weeks.
We had only broad plans when we started making up our way as it came along.
First up to Nantes, France in Bretagne region.
Then, Lorient with a brief stop over in Quimperle.
We decided to get a different perspective of France, so we kicked it all the way over to Lyon.
Finally full of croisants, cheese, bread, and a couple extra pounds gained, we decided to pop down to Barcelona (second time for me and I´m still not done with this place.)
Now we are just about to catch a train back to San Sebastian for La Tamborrada one of San Sebastian´s biggest festivals, and to hit a sideria for chuleta, bacalao, and as much hard cider from the barrel as we can manage.
Next it´s back to Portland on the 25th for about 2 weeks, then to Minneapolis to visit my sister for a couple days. And on to Ann Arbor. Much much more to come!
